After fumbling for the third time this season in Week 11 vs. the Steelers, Reggie Bush promised he wouldn't fumble again in 2013.

Five quarters later, Packers linebacker Clay Matthews made him renege on that promise.

With the Lions driving on their opening series Thursday, with quarterback Matthew Stafford looking sharp and running back Joique Bell running hard, Matthews forced a fumble from Bush on the Packers 9-yard line and Green Bay recovered.

When he returned to the sideline, Bush put his head in his hands in what we assume is disgust.

Probably because this is what Bush said after Week 11 when he said he was done with the fumbles.

"That just comes with me, mentally, constantly reminding myself, all week throughout practice of making sure I'm high and tight, whether I'm going through the hole or after practice doing extra drills. Those are the things to make sure that it doesn't happen again and it won't happen again."
